Hi Ed002. Hope you are well?

Are you able to share whether Chelsea are looking to sign Jude Bellingham?

Thanks in advance!

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has spoken with the player and his family - but nothing more and the asking price is very significant.}

1.) 12 Mar 2020 19:53:04
Great info Ed. Thank you.



27 May 2017 08:44:10
Morning Ed,

Any chance of a quick and dirty summary of our transfer targets?

Thanks Steve.

{Ed002's Note - I have no time to do that right now.}

1.) 28 May 2017 00:09:01
I understand. Thanks for the reply.



20 Mar 2017 14:33:40
Good Afternoon Eds. we are currently being linked with various players from Monaco. Are there any players in particular from Monaco that we'd like to sign?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, as previously explained Chelsea has and interest in Bakayoko and Bernardo Silva. Chelsea gas also spoken with Monaco over a couple of other players, including Thomas Lemar, but Monaco have numerous sides trying to talk to them about numerous players and are unlikely to want to make too many changes.}

1.) 20 Mar 2017 16:22:34
Thanks for the quick reply Ed002.

2.) 20 Mar 2017 19:23:24
Ed002 do you have any information regarding if Monaco are going to make any of their players available for transfer this summer e. g Silva, Mbappe? Or are they going to try and keep all there top stars at the club and build for next season?

{Ed002's Note - See above. Certainly I would expect a couple of players to leave if very high offers are made.}

3.) 21 Mar 2017 07:17:06
Cheers ed.



30 Jan 2017 12:40:03
Good Afternoon Eds....are you able to share any upto date information on any January transfer business from Chelsea?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything new this morning S.}

1.) 30 Jan 2017 14:20:40
Thanks for a quick reply Ed002. You're insight is appreciated.

2.) 30 Jan 2017 14:29:21
jim white mentioning we might be in for Sead Kolasinac, never heard of him before myself.



17 Jan 2017 16:26:23
Good Afternoon Ed. Thanks for your time on the Sharkopod.

Is there anything you can share on Chelsea's possible interest in Adama Traore?

Many Thanks

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing of it Studley.}

1.) 17 Jan 2017 17:57:16
Many thanks for replying so quickly

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Do you think we'll see any in's at the Bridge before tomorrow's deadline?

1.) 30 Jan 2020 15:55:07

2.) 30 Jan 2020 22:00:27
No chance, unless something is cooking behind the scenes.



23 Mar 2019 23:39:21
Guys - just go easy on Ed002 and give him a break. He's only been back a couple of days and it's overwhelming. Please be grateful and appreciate the insight or you'll end up spoiling it for the rest of us. yet again!

1.) 24 Mar 2019 09:38:24
Agreed, think through your questions and read through the posts.

2.) 24 Mar 2019 21:30:39
Exactly what was on my mind.



03 Aug 2018 17:08:31
Is there any chance of a quick and dirty summary of Ins and Outs over the next few days? Thank You!

1.) 03 Aug 2018 17:29:27
we don't get updates on the Chelsea page I'm afraid mate.

2.) 03 Aug 2018 20:22:46
I’m a half full type of guy Doug. if you don’t ask!



31 Dec 2017 13:07:56
How about a Luiz / Alexis Sanchez swap?

1.) 31 Dec 2017 14:05:42
that would be too good to be true.



22 Jul 2017 18:35:00
How about Luke Shaw plus £20-£30m for Matic?

1.) 22 Jul 2017 22:15:30
I'd take that in a heartbeat.

2.) 22 Jul 2017 22:17:16
These are the kind of questions that actually make you chuckle. Haha.

3.) 23 Jul 2017 08:22:49
Yeah make no mistake, while that deal would be great for us there's no way in hell that's happening :-)

Kepa Arrizabalaga (G) no decision yet but Chelsea has a list of possible replacements that they are looking at – right now don’t expect him to leave
Jamal Blackman (G) now 26 and wants to be playing will be likely made available after a loan to Bristol Rovers
Willy Caballero (G) out of contract in the summer but will be offered a one year deal.
Tariq Lamptey (RB) gone to Brighton after turning down offers from Lille and PSG
Marcos Alonso (LB) will likely move in the summer
Baba Rahman (LB) will be made available
Davide Zappacosta (LWB) will be available if fully fit
Juan Castillo (LB) Ajax will likely take up their option to buy
Jake Clarke-Salter (CB) club to discuss his future with him - interest remains from Germany and I suspect Championship sides
Marc Guehi (CB) loan to Swansea
Josh Grant (CB/ FB) will move to Plymouth
Matt Miazga (CB) will be made available – recovery from injury will need to be checked first
Michael Hector (CB) joined Fulham
N'Golo Kante (DM/ CM) there will be interest but could be priced out of a move

Tiemoue Bakayoko (DM/ CM) Monaco may take up their option to buy - else available for sale
Mario Pasalic (CM) will join Atalanta in the summer
Danny Drinkwater (CM) Chelsea want him moved on and a loan to Aston Villa gives a short term solution – but he will be gone in the summer
Tariq Uwakwe (CM) Should have got a January loan and the be assessed in the summer – but a year long loan may help him the – Hull are very keen
Danilo Pantic (CM) Fehervar wanted to take up their option and then sell him on – but he returned to Chelsea – expect a sale in the summer
George McEachran (CM) HG status will be secured with 6 more months in England - so a loan to SC Cambuur until the summer
Conor Gallagher (CM) loan to Swansea
Kenedy (LM/ LW/ LB) Getafe will take up their option in all probability and may sell him on
Marco van Ginkel (CM/ AM) Chelsea would like to keep him but a new contract and a slightly complex deal with PSV might be possible
Lewis Baker (CM) FD will not take up their option and Chelsea will look to get what they can for him.
Ross Barkley (CM/ AM) has had his head down for a couple of years but has been playing up lately - Chelsea will look to move him on with RLC near fitness (although he may never be able to play a full match or consecutive full matches)
Nathan (LW/ AM) contract extension and another year at Atletico Mineiro
Izzy Brown (AM/ F) not happening for him - will be available
Victor Moses (RW) available in the summer after a loan to Fenebace and Inter. Inter have an option to buy him.
Pedro (RW)
Willian (RW/ LW) Chelsea want him to stay and Willian wants to stay - the offer is a one year deal and then a discussion next year against the desired 2 year deal.
Lucas Piazon (LW) wants to stay in England - probably will be available - no option for Rio Ave
Michy Batshuayi (S) Chelsea have no interest in letting him go in January and will need to talk to him about his future - there is support to keep him at the club
Charley Musonda (S) will likely need to drop down a level or two - available
Ike Ugbo (F) expect another loan
Olivier Giroud (S) has a number of offers but will move in the summer when his contract runs out – Inter want OG or Mertens.

Great question Samuel. Eds answer will create plenty of turmoil for some!

Unfortunately we can only play 11 players at once and have just 18 in a match day squad. It’s good to see Chelsea having a clear long term strategy. It’s even more critical with the youth players now having a path to the first team.

Jackson - Every report I’ve read rates him very highly. I share your enthusiasm on this one. Another coup for our youth recruitment if true!

EmilSC - What are you trying to wind Ed002 up for? We’d rather keep Ed002 as a source than have to rely on Olive 🙄🥺.

Dazza. Ed said it all depended on departures. He’d answered the question and this is part of the reason he gets frustrated with us on here. Patience my friend!

Morning Ed001. Is Bayern’s pursuit of Callum within the rules? It feels very close to “tapping” him up? Thanks S.

{Ed001's Note - it is within the letter if not spirit of the law.}

Has to be Callum. We need home grown players making it to the first team and CHO could be a star for another 15 years!
